Despite the ongoing corona situation, the field period of PIAAC Cycle 2 in Germany was successfully completed. In the period June-July, a total of 444 face-to-face interviews were conducted with persons of a quota sample under strict hygiene conditions. Thirty-two interviewers from the survey institute Kantar had recruited 464 persons aged 16-65 for the PIAAC interview in advance of the field period according to specific quota specifications.
The survey and competency data for Germany collected in the PIAAC interview were processed together with information on the sample at the GESIS NPM team and submitted to the international PIAAC consortium on schedule at the beginning of September. The international PIAAC consortium will conduct various analyses with the field test data from all countries participating in PIAAC in order to optimize the survey instruments for the main study due in late summer 2022. GESIS is also involved in these international analyses as part of the international consortium.
